For me whether or not she has a job, what I want to see is a passion. For example, if she's a struggling songwriter or artist with no job, but she's still passionate about her work, I would have dated her when single.
It would depend on why they don't have a job. If they are just too lazy to get one (and/or looking for me to support them) then I'm going to have second thoughts about dating. If there are legitimate reasons, like they haven't been able to get one (but have been legitimately trying), or they have a physical disability that limits them, that's totally understandable. Or they're rich and/or cared for and therefore don't need one lol. Haven't met anyone like that though.
Would date them if they were genuinely looking to change their unemployment status otherwise it'd be a short relationship. It's not for the fact that it might make them more interesting more that they are more independent and driven and at least have some structure to their days/week.
It would depend on whether or not they're actively looking for employment. If they're looking for a job, great! I have a job too so that means more money for us, lol. But I would hope they're somebody who can keep a job for the long term. Not someone who jumps from job to job because they get bored of it or they hate their boss or something stupid like that.
If they just want to sit at home, collect welfare checks and use me as an ATM, no thanks. I'll pass.
I have zero respect for people that don't work. Like I get it if they just got laid off sure if they're looking for another one but there are jobs out there but people feel to entitled to work at a job that's beneath them. I have respect for people working at Mcdonalds when they're down and out because even though it's shit work it's still work.
Yes, but depends on what they're doing in the meantime. Like, if they're in school or they just got laid off or something, then yes, but if you're just a bum, then no. Not having a job doesn't make them boring or uninteresting, just makes them unemployed.
The people saying "yes" are not honest. Sorry, if I'm career-orientated and have a good paying job myself, why would I date someone who doesn't have a job at all? That's not realistic. UNLESS, we're married and my husband loses his job. That's a different situation. 1) at least he worked at some point. 2) he's my husband. But I will not willingly date someone who lacks motivation and ambition. It's not about gender. Men should feel otherwise the same as me in regards to women.
If they had a reason to not work (disabled, temporarily displaced, etc.) then yes. But if they chose not to work and didn't have a solid reason, no. If they're independently wealthy, then they should spend time doing charity work or bettering themselves.
It depends. I expect the guys in my age group to have most if not all of their shit together by now or at least well on their way. If there's not a valid or legit reason for it, we wouldn't be having a 2nd date.
